One cut in half
Strawberries are in season! Actually, they pretty much stay in the grocery stores year round now, but they definitely are tasting better than in the middle of winter. Anyway, I have had this canvas sitting around my studio for awhile that is 4"x12". It is an odd dimension, and I didn't know what to paint on it. I thought, maybe a line of strawberries. Here is the result! Strawberries are a challenge. That red is kind of orange, and kind of purple in the shadows. And the question arises, do you paint all the seeds? Or do you just imply them? I opted for the latter!
